TUESDAY MORNING SESSION 
October 20, 1936 

1. On October 20, 1936, the One Hundred Twenty-first Annual

Aubrey S. Tomlinson, Laurinburg. 

Song: ** Sweet Hour of Prayer'*. 

9. The following Associational Report splendidly prepared and at this 
period read by James Dockery Williams, Rockingham, was accepted by 
the Association upon motion by Charles B. Deane and the second of 
Aubrey S. Tomlinson. 



THE ASSOCIATIONAL REPORT 

10. There is the story of a farmer, who, in describing his Christian 
experience, used the following statement, **Well, I'm not making much 
progress, but I'm established." One day the farmer was hauling logs 
and his wagon sank into the mud. After failing to get the wagon out, 
he climbed up on the logs to study the situation. A neighbor and fellow- 
church member passed and said, ''Brother Jones, I see you're not 
making much progress, but you're firmly established." 



Pee Dee Baptist Association 15 

11. Baptists of the Pee Dee Association have been a part of the 
State and Southern Baptist conventions for years, and we are glad to 
say that we have not become established in the mud, but have pro- 
gressed since then. Satisfaction is bad if it makes us lazy or careless, 
because the onward procession might change into the vicious circle that 
spells stagnation. In presenting this report, it is hoped that we may 
rejoice in our progress, and at the same time, heed the command to move 
to the fore for Christ. 

THE CO-OPERATIVE PROGRAM 

12. In giving through (not to) the co-operative program, we give to 
the support of the whole or complete plan of Christ: preaching, teaching, 
healing and visitation of the needy. It is important that we understand 
the method of operation of this co-operative program — the funds are 
given undesignated, and applied in proportion to the needs of all our 
causes. In North Carolina, 60% of the contributions are used at 
home, while 40% is given over to south wide needs. It is hoped that this 
can be changed soon, to a 50-50 basis. The plan is as yet, the most 
satisfactory that we can use. The HABIT of giving in this manner is 
what we need, because I'm sure we all understand its purpose — the 
proportionate support of ALL that Jesus would have us do as HIS fol- 
lowers. 

MISSIONS 

13. We have in American History, two great commissions. The first 
made George "Washington commander-in-chief of the Colonial Army; and 
he led our colonies to victory. The second great commission sent Benja- 
min Franklin to the Court of France, where his service meant much to 
America. All through the world, there are great commissions, but the 
Great Commission is found in Matthew 28, and we hope that we may, 
in our capacity^ obey the commission of Christ in its entirety. 

14. For the past several months, we have been studying in Sunday 
School, about Christ's Commission that has changed the world, and 
about the spread of the new Christian religion, step by step, as He had 
directed. The three steps were First — establishing the nucleus at home — 
then working in the surrounding territory — and finally entering the world 
at large. It is our privilege to share in the work of three such fields. 

State Missions 

15. The organized efforts of our State Mission work is to win the 
people of North Carolina to Christ, and through our training agencies, 
to prepare them, as the State Missions Board says — to devote, not only 
a life, but a trained life to Christ's work. About one hundred and 
six,ty churches in needy and strategic places are being aided now in 
pastoral work. Churches in educational centers are aided in order that 



16 One Hundred Twenty-first Annual Session 

our students may have the best inducement to worship. Several churches 
are being helped in paying for adequate church plants. 

16. Eeverend Wayne Williams is carrying on his wonderful work 
among the sick veterans at the government hospital at Oteen, and Eev- 
erend and Mrs. M. C. Lunsford are continuing their fine work with 
the Indians in Eobeson County. In 1935, the Baptist State Convention 
decided to let Eeverend W. C. Somerville co-operate with the Negro 
State Convention in arousing and enlisting the quarter of a million 
Negro Baptists in the state. Let us pray that this work might continue 
to succeed in its purpose and that it might bring about a better racial 
understanding. The Board has two general missionaries — Eeverend 
M. O. Alexander and Eeverend J. C. Pipes, who give their attention 
to the state in general. Let us fortify our home base, because, upon 
that rests all our mission work. 

Home Missions 

17. Our Samaria consists of the Southland and Cuba — that is, the 
territory of the Southern Baptist Convention. No greater challenge con- 
fronts us as Christians than the winning of the people within our home- 
land borders, who need Christ. 10,000,000 Negroes, 5,000,000 foreigners, 
200,000 Indians in Oklahoma and New Mexico, 800,000 Mexicans on 
our side of the border, and 600,000 French in Louisiana are enough 
to make us forget our back-fence squabbles and get to work on our 
possibilities among these people. 

18. The Home Mission Board is making splendid progress, consider- 
ing its financial limitations. Twenty-seven new missionaries were 
appointed last year, who bring the total up to two hundred and eighty- 
three, working eight hundred and ninety-four mission churches and mis- 
sion ' stations. Bibles are distributed, a sanatorium is supported, an 
orphanage for Mexican children is maintained, a free clinic is furnished 
for poor children in Cuba, and other worthy activities are carried on. 
This has been done for two years without borrowing money, and pay- 
ments are being made on the principal of old debts. 

Foreign Missions 

19. The Gospel message, having radiated from the center or origin 
on toward the circumference of the mission field, is now carried by 
Southern Baptists into fifteen foreign countries. We rejoice in the 
fact that last year, there were reported from our fields, 13,982 baptisms. 
This means that splendid progress has been made since the beginning of 
our foreign mission work ninety-one years ago. Our next thought is, 
that the possibilities before us are so much greater than the progress 
mjade. The outlook is hopeful, however, both in a material and in a 
spiritual sense. The debt has been reduced since January 1st, 1935 by 
$480,500 — leaving the present debt about $444,000. The Board has 



Pee Dee Baptist Assoctation 17 



pledged to live within its income, and by 1938 it expects to pay its 
debt entirely. Let us work for increased contribution toward this end. 

20. The W. M. U., in addition to its Lottie Moon and other offer- 
ings, has pledged to secure 25,000 new members for the Hundred Thous- 
and Club, a good proportion of whose funds go to Foreign Missions. 
W. M. U. has beyond a doubt, saved us from more serious retreat on 
foreign fields. To insure the return of our missionaries on furlough to 
their work, let us pledge greater financial support and more earnest 
prayers. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

21. "The Christian College is the center for the reorganization of 
society after the mind of Christ, ' ' says our beloved Dr. William Louis 
Poteat, who celebrates his eightieth birthday today, October twentieth. 
The influence of the Christian College is an invisible light beam which 
may touch off in man, the motive that is higher than financial gain and 
political aspiration — that motive of searching for truth, and in its light, 
serving fellowmen and crowning Christ our perfect King. 

22. Our Baptist colleges and seminaries are educating around 23,000 
young people in the light of Christ's teachings. Their properties and 
endowments are valued at over $60,000,000, but their value is not 
estimated in dollars. Such things as progress. Christian influence, and 
the way to salvation cannot be termed in statistical figures. We must 
make our future leaders Christ-conscious or the world will bleed itself 
to death on the battlefields of competitive greed, jealousy and treachery. 
"Christian education," says Herald and Presbyter, ''is the sole hope 
of our nation. If our people grow up in succeeding generations with- 
out the permeating and saving influences of divine truth in their hearts 
and lives, we will become increasingly materialistic and unbelieving and 
immoral, selfish and hard, lost to the true principles of high and holy 
character. True religion is no more sectarian than sunshine or rain, 
and every one who has any concern for the welfare of the children and 
of the nation must combine in securing true training for those who are 
coming now to years of responsibility and activity." 

BENEVOLENCES 
The Hospital 

23. Our Baptist hospital in Winston-Salem is the result of our 
desire to do on a large scale something for those who are suffering. 
The joy of our hospital work is that it furnishes treatment for many 
who are not able to affford it. Of the four thousand expected paitients 
for 1936, almost one-half of that number will be part-pay and free 
patients. Although the Duke Endowment gives about one-fourth of the 
daily cost of each patient, Mr. Hagaman and his fine staff of sixty-six 
doctors, nurses (forty -seven), and surgeons must depend largely on our 



18 One Hunbred Twenty-first Annual Session 

desire to have a supporting part in their work. Through our church 
offerings, especially on Mother's Day, the greater part of the expense 
of the hospital is derived. Our healing of the sick in body is but a 
continuation of the practice of Jesus. 

The Orphanage 

24. The part of our work that is concerned with the care of little 
children is the part that always attracts our attention. For several 
reasons, it should attract our aittention, and, of course, the first is our 
desire to see children reared under a well-rounded and Christian pro- 
gram. Mills Home and Kennedy Home have given about four thousand 
children nourishing food, wholesome activities, thorough training and 
Christian influence. 

25. Even though we realize that all the fine things that are being 
done, require money, and that the limited physical plant of the orphan- 
age needs to be expanded, less than three hundred of our two thousand, 
four hundred and ten Sunday Schools even attempt a monthly offering 
for the orphanage. It is chiefly through the Thanksgiving offering that 
the funds are supplied. Mr. Greer and his helpers need both our ma- 
terial and our spiritual support in giving these members of the future 
generation, their opportunity in the world. 

Relief and Annuity 

26. In the eighteen years of its service, the Relief and Annuity 
Board has directed a cheering ray of comfort and reassurance into the 
lives of several thousands of our aged ministers and mdows of minis- 
ters. Never has a worthier cause been supported, because these men 
and women have spent their lives in serving God and God's people. It 
is not just that they should be dependent and insecure in their latter 
years. ' Increased contributions are sought by means of a Fellowship 
Offering to be taken at least once a year in each church in connection 
with the observance of the Lord's Supper. Over one hundred North 
Carolinians are helped yearly by the Eelief Fund. 

27. The younger men in the ministry may prepare for the future 
through the Annuity fund by paying a small percentage of the monthly 
salary, supplementary to a similar percentage paid by the church. 
Only one-fifth of the cost is paid by the beneficiary, because the denomi- 
nation pays the remaining four-fifths through the Annuity Board. 

TRAINING ACTIVITIES 
Sunday School 

28. *'A good Sunday School is not an accident" is a truthful state- 
ment found in our Baptist manual, Building a Standard Sunday School. 
It is equally true that the splendid state work is not an accident, but 
is built by the active and loving hands in charge of it. Realizing that 
the essentials of a good Sunday School must be known, that the plans 



Pee Dee Baptist Association 19 

for building a good Sunday School must be understood, and that the 
specifications for building a good Sunday School must be faithfully 
followed, our workers are making North Carolina aware of the essentials, 
plans and specifications. 

29. Last Sunday, in our classes, we considered the subject of Evan- 
gelism and the Bible, and we are glad that we have a well-organized 
department to teach the Bible and to help evangelize our people. Our 
individual and combined co-operation is not too much to give in reaching 
the thousands who are unenlisted and unsaved. Our smooth-running 
organizations do not give reason for our let-up in trying to reach people 
through our Sunday Schools. Comparatively recent data show a state 
membership (Baptist) of not quite 400,000, but on the other hand, 
there are said to be more than that number of children in our state 
who cannot be reached by Sunday Schools. Let us be thankful for the 
large work we can do in Christ's name, and let us apply ourselves with 
ever-increasing love and power to reaching the multitude that need our 
Christ and His teachings. 

Baptist Training Union 

30. The opportunity that is presented in our Baptist Training Unions 
is so great that every effort should be made to enrich the work and 
widen its scope. The Sunday Schools teach our Christians and try to 
bring non-christians to a saving knowledge of Christ. Is the work of 
enlisting and training our church members any less important? Al- 
though the adult unions are growing the majority of the members of 
B. T. U. are our young people, and they need this very training to 
prepare them to be our consecrated and informed church leadership of 
the future. If our members would be strong in the grace that is in 
Christ Jesus, they must have more than a speaking acquaintance with 
the Bible, faith, prayer, our denominational work and the needs of 
today. Through the Baptist Training Unions, the members learn these 
essentials by participating in a program of Christian training that 
cares for the spiritual and social needs of youth — whether that youth 
be ten years old or fifty. Only one or two over half our thirty-two 
churches in Pee Dee Association are training their members through 
our training agency. We pray for co-operation on the part of our 
parents, and for sincere and God-nourished consecration on the part of 
all leaders and members, as they live for Jesus. 

31. This movement is going to fail of its purpose unless we keep 
it en a consecrated and inspirational basis, and unless we remember 
that B. T. U. is a part of the church that trains for church membership. 
If we go to B. Y. P. U. to thus train, let us remember to put our 
training into practice in the church work. No person is loyal to the 
purpose of B. T. U. who lets it interfere with his church services. 



20 One Hundred Twenty-first Annual Session 

RELIGIOUS LITERATURE 

32. The official organs of the Sunday School, Baptist Training Union, 
Baptist Student Union — in fact, all our splendid denominational periodi- 
cals — are worthy of mention because of their assistance to our work. 
However, only our state papers, the BiMioal Beoorder and Charity and 
Children will be discussed. 

33. The Biblical Beoorder is our able official paper, and through 
its weekly messages, we are kept in touch with religious affairs, both 
local and at large. It is our unifying medium, and lets the right hand 
know what the left is doing, so that there may be informed co-operation 
and inspiration. 

34. Charity and Children is the organ of our Baptist Orphanage, 
and has a circulation of 27,800. It is valuable, not only because of its 
wealth of interesting and spiritual news for Baptists, but because it 
gives valuable training to many of the orphanage boys. It is the only 
department that makes any money for the orphanage. Let us pay up 
our subscriptions and get these papers in every home. 

35. When Martin Luther threw his inkstand at the devil, he showed 
us what we should be doing today. The inkstand is literature, good or 
bad, according to the one doing the hurling. The devil is now the 
pitcher and we Christians must pitch a better game if we would score 
our hits. 

Eespectfully submitted, 

James Dockery Williams. 

36. It being noted that today marks the eightieth birthday of Wm. 
Louis Poteat, Wake Forest College, Wake Forest, the Association in- 
structe^d the Clerk upon motion by J. B. Willis, to wire greetings to this 
beloved Christian and through him best wishes to Wake Forest College: 

Dr. Wm. Louis Poteat 
Wake Forest, N. C. 

The Pee Dee Baptist Association meeting on your 
Eightieth Birthday in One Hundred Twenty-first Annual 
Session with Spring Hill Church would greet and felicitate 
you on your happy birthday. Your strong' life influences 
and guides us today. Live on we sincerely pray. With 
this message we would have you carry to Wake Forest our 
support, gratitude and encouragement.

24 One Hundred Twentt-fiest Annual Session 

T. W. Hearne, Promotion ChawTnan in the Association 
presided and first called upon the Clerk who pointed out 
from a blackboard reproduced on the preceding page the 
statistical accomplishments by churches. It was noted 
from this digest of church letters for the year ending 
September 30, 1936 as compared with the period ending 
September 30, 1935 a certain decline. This was particu- 
larly true in baptisms and denominational gifts; whereas 
it is known that the denominational gifts received by the 
State Mission Board from other sections are consider- 
ably better. A new resolve was entered into with each 
church aiming to greatly increase its denominational gifts. 

The Association rejoiced however in the accomplish- 
ment made by the Wadesboro church under the leadership 
of Pastor W. H. Moore, which reported $39,505.53 raised 
for local purposes, thus paying the church debt and is 
enabling them to complete their new church home to be 
dedicated in December, 1936. 

50. With Vice-Moderator Benjamin M. Covington presiding a dis- 
cussion of the Associational report was the special order. 

51. Prior to the discussion of Christian Education by O. W. McManus, 
Gibson, C. B. Deane nominated and the association elected Roland S. 
Pruette as Trustee of "VVingate Junior College for a three year term. 
The clerk explained that the Pee Dee Association was associated in the 
ownership and control of Wingate Junior College, along with the Union, 
Mecklenburg and Cabarrus Associations. President James B. Little 
made a report to the body and following his report he called upon Dina 
Dominquez, Paulina Garcia and Hilda Garcia students at the college 
from Cuba who sang in their native tongue. Continuing B. Y. Tyner 
from Meredith College and G. G. Page, Campbell College emphasized in 
brief speeches the importance of Christian Education. 

52. J. Marvin Smith, Rockingham next discussed State, Home and 
Foreign Missions. 

53. The Orphanage at Mills and Kennedy Homes was presented by 
Representative John Arch McMillan who was introduced by Charles E. 
Stevens, Morven. 

54. Brother McMillan in the absence of the designated speaker spoke 
on the Baptist Hospital. 

55. C. B. Deane having previously given notice introduced a resolu- 
tion that would change the time for the election of the Associational 
Offtcers. Upon motion by W. H. Moore the resolution was passed as 
follows : 

Resolved that Article 3 be amended as follows: That 
after the word 'elected', the remainder of the sentence be 



Pee Dee Baptist Association 25 

eliminated and the following phrase be inserted: "As the 
last item of business and just prior to adjournm^ent, and 
shall continue in office until their successors are elected." 

56. A Committee appointed in 1935 (See Page 23, section 53) 
brought a report to the effect that the Pee Dee Baptist Association had 
little if any legal right to a tract of land near the Morven Church. The 
Committee recommended that the matter be dropped. It was so ordered 
and the Committee discharged. 

57. '* Accepting the Challenge" was the theme of the challenging 
message delivered by W. H. Moore, Wadesboro. 

58. Benjamin M. Covington, Wadesboro, on behalf of the Association 
expressed to the members of the Spring Hill Churches the feelings of 
gratitude for the delightful way the Association had been entertained. 
This expression was voiced by the Association by standing vote upon 
the second of A. R. Brothers. 

59. '^We Praise Thee O God" was the closing song led by George 
Wallace and thereafter A. R. Brothers prayed and the One Hundred 
Twenty-first Annual Session of the Pee Dee Baptist Association ad- 
journed at 4:30 P.M. 

Beuce Benton, Moderator, 
Charles B. Deane, Cleric.

Fourth Annual Pee Dee Baptist Assooiational 

SUNDAY SCHOOL CONVENTION 

EOCKINGHAM BAPTIST ChURCH 

Rockingham, N. C. 
August 30, 1936 

1. The Sunday School Convention of the Pee Dee Baptist Association 
held its fourth annual session with the Eockingham Baptist Church at 
2:00 o'clock in the afternoon of August 30, 1936. 

2. C. C. Eeece, Gibson, Superintendent, called the meeting to the 
transaction of business and C. O, Funderburk led the group in the 
singing of ^'Help Somebody Today" and thereafter read 2 Timothy 
2:15 and the 1st Psalm. E. P. Pearce, Hamlet, prayed and the con- 
vention again sang, "I Will Sing the Wondrous Story". 

3. Superintendent Eeece brought greetings to the Convention, em- 
phasizing the fact that the records show a forty-two percent increase 
in efficiency and work in the Association over last year. He voiced, 
however, a strong feeling for the need of more co-operation from his 
own officers and the superintendents of the various Sunday Schools and 
Pastors in the Association. 

4. A Committee composed of W. H. Moore, J. B. Willis and J. E. 
Terry, were named to recommend the place for the next meeting. A 
roll call of the churches revealed forty-seven delegates present from 
the following churches: Cordova, Ellerbe, Gibson, Hamlet, First, Pee 
Dee, Pleasant Grove, Eiehmond, Eed Hill, Eockingham, First, Wades- 
boro, First. 

5. Miss Mildred Brooks, Hamlet, pleased the group in the presentation 
of a practical discussion to better the Sunday School work. She em- 
phasized particularly the need of visitation and how to get results. 

6. Miss Brooks was followed by O. W. McManus, Gibson, who used 
as a theme, '*Why Study the Bible in the Sunday School". 

Song: "I Love Thy Kingdom, Lord". 

7. A report was made by J. B. Willis from the Committee on Place, 
and recommended that the Convention hold its next meeting with the 
Wadesboro Baptist Church. Upon motion by J. E. Terry, the report was 
accepted. At this point the Associational Superintendent voiced the 
feeling whether or not to continue the Sunday School Convention in the 
Association. Pastor T. W. Hearne, Eockingham, arose and brought a 
strong appeal that the work be continued even though it is far from 
what is desired. Following these words the Association resolved to con- 
tinue the work and T. W. Heaxne from the floor nominated C. C. 



30 One Hundred Twenty-first Annual Session

Gum Springs, Hamlet, First, Laurinburg, First, Lilesville, McDonald,

Song: "I Am Resolved". 

6. Miss Mabel Starnes, State B. T. U. field worker, brought a splendid

THE ASSOCIATIONAL REPORT 

THE CO-OPERATIVE PROGRAM 

11. The Co-operative Program was adopted by Southern Baptists as 
the best plan of carrying out the command of Jesus to give the Gospel 
to a lost world. It discourages supporting one phase of Kingdom work 
to the neglect of the whole. In order for the plan to succeed, every state 
in the Southern Baptist Convention must contribute liberally through 
this plan to all of its objects. This can be done only when the Associa- 
tions of each state enlist all of their churches in co-operation with this 
program; the success of each church depends upon the support given by 
its members. The Co-operative Program is an effort to correlate all the 
work of the Southern Baptist Convention into one budget, thereby en- 
abling every member of all our churches to share through his contribu- 
tions the success of the work at home and abroad. In order to accomplish 
this, it is necessary for every church to set up a budget as a goal and 
put on yearly an intensive every-member canvass to secure a pledge 
from each member for some definite part of the budget, and in no case 
should this pledge be for less than the tithe of the member 's income. 

MISSIONS 

12. Missions originated in the heart of God. It is His eternal plan 
for the redemption of a lost world through the preaching of a personal 
faith in His Son as the one and only Savior, who atoned through His 
vicarious suffering on the cross for the sins of all people. Therefore God 
has commanded that through human agencies this message should be 
proclaimed to all the world, making disciples of aU nations. 

Dr. W. 0. Carver says, ' * In the Bible, we find the missionary thought 
in God's heart, the missionary message in Christ's atonement, the mis- 
sionary duty in our Lord's commands, the missionary power in the Holy 
Spirit, whom God hath given to them that obey Him. ' ' 

State Missions 

13. Our work of State Missions is going forward under the capable 
direction of Mr. M. A. Huggins, Secretary and Treasurer of the General 
Board, ably assisted by his faithful co-workers. M. 0. Alexander and 
J. C. Pipes are general missionaries in the Department of Missions. The 
Department of Christian Education is under the direction of W. Perry 
Crouch, Secretary. The division of Sunday School is directed by L. L. 
Morgan, Secretary. The division of the Baptist Training Union is under 
the direction of Nathan C. Brooks, Secretary, and Miss Mabel Starnes, 
Associate Secretary. The Department of Student Activities is directed 
by Miss Cleo Mitchell, Secretary. The Department of Benevolence is 
under the direction of E. T. Vann. The Baptist Book Store is under the 
successful management of Mrs. Eoger P. Marshall. 

Under the Department of Missions there are approximately sixty- 
three missionary pastors serving 133 churches. These workers reported 



16 One Hundred Twenty-second Annual Session 

last year 1,501 conversions, 889 baptisms, and 687 additions to their 
churches from other sources. Missionaries Alexander and Pipes were 
busily engaged in revivals and conducting many other meetings with 
special groups in the work of enlistment and promotion, which greatly 
strengthened and blessed our work. 

Under the Department of Sunday Schools the work has been faith- 
fully carried on by Secretary L. L. Morgan. With the assistance of a 
large number of special workers, he has held numbers of Sunday School 
revivals, institutes and enlargement campaigns that greatly blessed and 
encouraged the Sunday School work and workers. 

Under the division of the Baptist Training Union, Secretary Nathan 
C. Brooks and Miss Mabel Stames have greatly stimulated and assisted 
the Baptist Training Union work in all of our churches through their 
well planned programs and untiring efforts. 

Under the division of Student Activities Miss Cleo Mitchell, Student 
Secretary, is engaged in caring for the spiritual interests of our Baptist 
r^'oung People in colleges. 

The Sunday School, Student Activities, and Baptist Training Union 
are under the supervision of the Department of Christian Education 
directed by W. Perry Crouch. 

Our Board is gradually liquidating its debts; the amount owed now 
is largely for bonds endorsed for educational institutions. The Board 
has announced a policy, **No borrowing by the Convention, or any of 
its institutions, or agencies." 

Our Board has endorsed the Hundred Thousand Club and is promot- 
ing this work on a basis of a division of fifty-fifty between the Club 
and the Board, the Club furnishing the literature for promotion, and 
the Board paying the expense of the collection. This arrangement is 
strongly commended as an agency to supplement funds that are to be 
used only in the payment of the debts of the Southern Baptist Conven- 
tion and the State Mission Board. 

Our State Mission Board promotes interest in all the objects of the 
Co-operative Program, collects funds that are forwarded to the Executive 
Committee, of the Southern Baptist Convention, which makes dis- 
tribution to the different objects according to the percentage allocated 
by the Southern Baptist Convention. 

Home Missions 

14. Our Home Mission Board, located in Atlanta, Georgia, under 
the direction of J. B. Lawrence, Executive Secretary, has been operating 
for some time within its income, and is gradually paying its stupendous 
debt. Progress is being made in the work of evangelism, enlistment, 
stewardship and missions. The Board is ministering to the spiritual 
needs of the people in Cuba and Central America, in this country, to the 
foreigners, the Jews, the Negroes, the Indians, and the people of the 
mountains. Thirty-five new missionaries have been located in new fields 



Pee Dee Baptist Association 17 

of service. There are 327 missionaries and 850 stations. A great harvest 
of souls is gathered into the Kingdom each year through the ministry 
of this great company of unselfish, faithful workers. 

Through the Building and Loan Department, many new church build- 
ings have been erected and old ones improved. 

Foreign Missions 

15. Our Foreign Mission Board is located in Richmond, Virginia. Dr. 
Cfharles E. Maddry is Etxecutive Secretary. No man in modern times has 
been called upon to carry greater burdens or bear greater heart strain 
than Dr. Maddry. The terrible war now raging between Japan and China 
makes it very difficult for our missionaries in Japan to carry forward 
their work successfully, with the general impression prevailing that the 
sympathy of America is with China; and the fierce battles in China 
have destroyed much of our property and so endangered the lives of 
our missionaries that it has been found necessary, according to the re- 
quest of Secretary of State Cordell Hull, to remove them from the dan- 
ger zone, and if possible, from China. It may be necessary for our 
Board to return all missionaries from China. These conditions have 
created a necessity for an additional large sum of money. Unless our 
churches respond quickly and generously to the appeal of our Foreign 
Mission Board, it will be necessary to greatly increase the Board's debt 
that has been so rapidly reduced. On January 1, 1933, the Foreign Mis- 
sion Board debt was $1,110,000. On May 1 this year it had been re- 
duced to $367,500, the interest on same reduced from six to four per cent. 

We strongly urge every church in our Association that has not al- 
ready done so, to immediately take the largest offering it is possible to 
secure and forward at once, directly to the Foreign Mission Board, 
Southern Baptist Convention, Richmond, Virginia. 

The final request of our Lord was that His followers should carry 
the Gospel into all the world, that all nations should become His dis- 
ciples. The missionaries of this Board have carried the Gospel message 
to fifteen foreign countries where it has proved to be the power of God 
unto salvation, in the conversion of thousands of lost souls, numbers of 
whom having become special workers in the Kingdom, have led in or- 
ganizing many churches, and in the building of many houses of worship. 

Our Foreign Mission work consists of evangelism, education and heal- 
ing. We have many natives preaching the Gospel in the different lands 
where our work is located, a number of schools, seminaries and publish- 
ing houses. We have some well equipped hospitals that are reaching 
many souls through successful ministry to their sick and suffering bodies. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

16. The Baptists of North Carolina are well equipped for the work 
of Christian Education in the fullest and highest sense. Wake Forest, 
Meredith, Chowan, Mars Hill, Campbell, and the college of our own, 



18 One Hundred Twenty-seoond Annual Session 

Wingate, are under the direction of as capable, consecrated teachers 
as can be found in any institutions. They have contributed to the pro- 
duction of as fine Christian men and women as hare ever blessed this 
world. The real task of our educational institutions is to make and keep 
the students genuinely Christian in all their ways in life, promoting infor- 
mation and spiritual co-operation in service to God and man. All of our 
colleges are overflowing this year with students who are eager to prepare 
themselves for the highest efficiency in Christian living. Mrs. John Lane 
has said, ''Christianity exalts reverent scholarship." Eeverent scholar- 
ship always seeks to know the will of God and how to perform it. Our 
Baptist colleges keenly feel their responsibility to inculcate in their stu- 
dents worthy attitudes toward God and Man. 

Southern Baptists through the support of the Sunday School Board 
at Nashville, Tennessee, under the management of Perry Morgan, have 
a great educational institution in the Baptist Assembly located at Ridge- 
crest, North Carolina. Each year thousands of boys and girls, young 
men and women and those of more mature life receive religious instruc- 
tion and inspiration at this beautiful place of rest and recreation. 

BENEVOLENCES 

Orphanage 

17. The orphanage work has a great appeal to the hearts of North 
Carolina Baptists; therefore we have under the direction of I. G. Greer, 
the general superintendent, two as fine institutions doing as efficient 
work for orphan children as can be found in the world. The larger, the 
parent institution, Mills Home, is located in Thomasville, under the 
personal direction of Mr. Greer, and Kennedy Home, located at Kinston, 
North Carolina, under the supervision of J. C. Hough. Both institutions 
are well equipped for doing most satisfactory work in educating^ train- 
ing, and caring for our children. A deep spiritual atmosphere permeates 
all the activities and life in our orphanage institution. Consecrated men 
and womBn ably care for this glorious work entrusted to them by our 
Lord and Savior. 

The health of our children is unusually good. The results of all our 
work is very satisfactory. Besides the hundreds who are cared for at 
Mills and Kennedy Homes great numbers are helped through the Moth- 
er's Aid, making it possible for them to remain under the influence of 
their mother's ministry. 

These children of ours receive no support from the churches except 
the annual Thanksgiving offerings and the once-a-month contributions 
from our Sunday Schools. Last year in this Association there were four 
churches that gave nothing at all to this cause. The total gifts from the 
churches and Sunday Schools of the Pee Dee Association was only 
$1,836.02. Surely every church and Sunday School if it be ever so small 
will have a part in this glorious work. Let us pray for and give to this 



Pee Dee Baptist Association 19 

institution in a way that we will rejoice when we hear our Savior say, 
*'In as much as you have done it unto one of the least of these, you 
have done it unto me. ' ' 

Hospital 

18. Jesus went about healing all manner of sickness and disease as 
well as forgiving sins and saving souls. By relieving suffering humanity 
of their physical ailments, He was able to draw them unto Himself. 

Our Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem is undertaking in the name 
of Christ to cure people, relieving them of suffering and prolonging life 
for the glory of our Lord. No doubt, many fathers have been spared by 
the ministry of this blessed institution to support their families and to 
live for the glory of God. Many a precious mother has been carried 
helpless and almost hopeless to that good hospital of ours. After God 
so graciously ministered to her needs through the unsurpassed doctors, 
surgeons, and nurses, who so faithfully serve there, she was enabled to 
return to her home restored in health to care for her children. 

The only means of support that the hospital receives from the 
churches is the offering made each year on Mothers' Day. Every church 
and Sunday School should make a generous offering to this work so dear 
to the heart of our Savior. The work promises great opportunity and de- 
serves larger support. 

The Relief and Annuity Board 

19. The Relief and Annuity Board of the Southern Baptist Conven- 
tion, located at Dallas, Texas, under the able administration of Dr. 
Thomas J. Watts, Executive Secretary, is making a very sincere effort 
to enlist all of our pastors and churches in a plan whereby the church 
pays each month three per cent of the pastor's salary and the pastor 
pays three per cent of his salary, creating a fund that will be paid to 
the preacher in monthly installments beginning at the retirement age of 
sixty-five in amounts, according to what the church and the preacher 
have paid into the annuity fund which is based upon the amount of 
the average salary that the minister has received. 

If the minister finds it necessary to discontinue his payments into the 
fund, he is entitled to withdraw what he has paid in -^vith the accumu- 
lated interest. Not only does the minister receive payments from the 
fund during his life after retirement, but his widow and children ben- 
efit therefrom after his death. 

RELIGIOUS LITERATURE 

20. The Biblical Eecorder is our only official source of information 
concerning the work of North Carolina Baptists. The limited number 
of subscriptions to the Eecorder from our Association is a reflection on 
our interest in the work of the Kingdom committed to us. The Bitlical 



20 One Hundred Twenty-second Annual Session 

Recorder gives to us each week reports of the work of the Sunday 
Schools, Baptist Training Union, Woman's Missionary Society, and the 
work of the churches in general besides many devotional, educational, 
and inspirational articles concerning our Southern activities and Baptist 
achievements throughout the world. 

We earnestly urge that every Baptist home receive and read the 
Biblical Recorder and Charity and Children, the official paper of our 
orphanage published at Thomasville. 

Eespectfully submitted, 

W. H. Moore. 

Song: "More About Jesus."

Pee Dee Baptist Association 25 

Proceedings 
Forty-third Annual Session 

WOMEN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

First Baptist Church 
Eockingham, North Carolina 

1. The Forty-third Annual Session of the Woman's Missionary Union 
of the Pee Dee Baptist Association convened at the First Baptist Church 
of Eockingham, at 10:00 o'clock A.M., March 18, 1937, with Mrs. W. C. 
Barrett, Superintendent, presiding. 

2. The Woman's Hymn ''Come, Women, Wide Proclaim" was the 
devotional based on the Scripture ''Be Ye Strong in the Lord and the 
Power of His Might." 

3. On behalf of the Association the Superintendent extended words 
of welcome to all visitors to which Mrs. Clyde Turner, Greensboro,

in the Association. ... I call special attention to the El- 
lerbe Al W. M. S. and the Laurinburg, First, Al Junior G. 
A. and the Peachland Al Intermediate G. A. ... A closer 
attention to reports and that the societies send in their

ASSOCIATIONAL REPORT 

14. The Co-operative Program 

Co-operation is a word conveying a principle taught and cherished 
by Baptists from the very beginning of Baptist operations. Mentally 
we have accepted it; practically we have abused it. Prom the indi- 
vidual church on out to the furthest reaches of our denominational 
organization and program, we have been convinced of the imperative 



Pee Dee Baptist Association 15 

need of co-operation. We have grouped ourselves into churches, as- 
sociations and conventions for the purpose of working together and 
advancing more effectively Kingdom interests. Our advance has, in 
large measure, been in proportion to our co-operation. 

In order to provide necessary funds with which to carry on our 
Missionary, Educational and Benevolent enterprises, Southern Baptists 
have adopted the budget method of financing, or, what they are pleased 
to call, ^'The Co-operative Program." Through this plan every agency 
receives its pro rata of all the undesignated funds committed to our 
Secretaries for distribution. 

15. State Missions 

It is a fact no longer challenged that State Missions ever has been, 
is today, and must ever be the base of supply in all our denominational 
work. "We have but to study its claims and to know its history to 
see that it is indispensable to the work of the Kingdom. To know 
the history of State Missions in North Carolina is to marvel at its 
progress. We are proud, and justly so, of our Mission record but we 
must not forget that there is yet much land to be possessed for God. 
Into our borders comes an ever increasing flow of immigrants, some 
without the truth, and others with false conceptions of the truth, either 
of which is perilous and detrimental to the cause of Christ. We 
must meet these conditions with the whole truth. When we are loyal 
to State Missions, as an organized system, we are loyal to the eternal 
principles of the Kingdom. 

For more than a century the objective of State Missions has been 
to win the people of North Carolina to Christ and then to the fellow- 
ship and service which the churches provide. Its effort has been 
first of aU, to win the heart to Christ, and from a surrendered heart, 
will come service, means and all that is high and worth while. 

State Missions reports itself in Missionary Pastoral Assistance, 
Teaching and Training, Church Building, Work Among Students in 
the Colleges, Hospitals and Sanatoriums, work with Negroes and In- 
dians, etc. 

A major emphasis of the Southern Baptist Convention and of our 
State Mission program during 1939 is to be evangelism. Let us as 
churches and individuals give ourselves whole-heartedly to this much- 
needed and worthy program. 

16. Home Missions 

At the base of all our Foreign Mission work lies the prosperity of 
our work at home. The louder and more impelling the call from 
abroad, the greater is the necessity for an adequate base of supplies 
at home. If Home Missions meant only the evangelization of America 
it would be worth while, but the evangelization of the world depends 
in a large measure upon America, and never before in American 



16 One Hundred Twenty-third Annual Session 

history have there been such insidious attacks upon true Christianity 
as there are today: Christian Science, Russellism, Mormonism, Uni- 
tarianism, etc. are being spread abroad through our land. 

The Home Mission Board is lifting up Christ in the homeland 
among the Indians, the Negroes, the under -privileged in the cities and 
congested industrial sections, and in Cuba and Panama. In all its 
departments of work, the Board has 327 missionaries working in 850 
mission stations. During the past convention year we have placed in 
the field 35 missionaries and have opened 36 new mission stations. 
We have done a notably fine work among the Jews, under the leader- 
ship of Rev. Jacob Gartenhaus. The re-established department of 
evangelism under the direction of Dr. Eoland Q. Leavell is doing much 
to quicken the fires of evangelism throughout the South. 

The Board has endeavored faithfully to perform its stewardship by 
pushing the mission work, and at the same time handling its finances 
so as to retire the indebtedness. Through the gifts of the Hundred 
Thousand Club, wise economy and painstaking efforts on the part of 
the Board, an appreciable amount has been paid each year on its debts. 

Twenty-two million souls out of Christ here in the homeland cry 
out to us for the bread of life. Is not this alone enough to make us 
lift up our eyes and look upon the fields that are white unto harvest? 

17. Foreign Missions 

Love to God and compassion for men are the motives that will 
create within us an interest in Foreign Missions. There is perhaps 
no other part of our work in which is to be found so much of the 
spirit of our Master. There is no better index to the spiritual condi- 
tion of a church than the interests she has in a lost world. Foreign 
Missions reaches to the ends of the earth with its message of salvation. 

In ninety-three years the Foreign Mission Board has not seen more 
troublous times. The whole world is its field of service and almost 
the world around war clouds are hovering with depressing and menac- 
ing effect. Most of our mission property in the Central, interior and 
North China Missions is now in the hands of the Japanese military 
authorities, and our missionaries are not even allowed to inspect the 
property and ascertain the extent of the damage. Many of the mis- 
sionaries have lost all of their personal effects, household goods, cloth- 
ing, books and all of those intimate personal accumulations of a life- 
time. It is estimated that at least fifty missionaries have lost an 
average of $1000 each in personal belongings. In spite of such losses, 
dangers and trials, these missionaries of the Cross carry on, smiling 
through their tears. 

Their spirit is a challenge to us in the homeland. 

For the calendar year 1937, the Board received for its work from 
all sources the sum total of $1,077,996.34. Our debt now stands at 



Pee Dee Baptist Association 17 

$316,000. Within the past five years we have paid on the principal of 
our debt $771,510. The Board has lived within its income and has 
not borrowed any money in five years. 

Statistics offer the following report: number of Baptisms, 14,027; 
total native membership, 208,794; total contributions by native 
churches, $370,638; total native churches, 1,802; total number self- 
supporting churches, 986. 

18. Christian Education 

Man is differentiated from other animals in that he has greater 
capacity for education. This superior capacity gives him supremacy 
over the lower animals. There is an education however, that makes 
man more dangerous than the untrained and untaught animal. The 
education that fails to give character and principle the supremacy 
over knowledge and that makes other than Christ its center is worse 
than ignorance. The education that cultivates and trains the brain 
but neglects the heart is worse than illiteracy. To meet and conquer 
the complex situation surrounding us today, we must have an educated 
citizenship, a citizenship educated in the highest sense of the term. 
If we as a denomination are to advance or even hold our own we must 
give Christian Education its place. 

Wake Forest College with its consecrated professorship and its 
amiable record is to us an object of pride. Her scholarship, her spirit 
and her efficiency give her a high place among the great Colleges of 
the South. Meredith is doing for our girls what Wake Forest is doing 
for our boys. Chowan, Campbell and Mars Hill are the Junior Colleges 
under Baptist control and ownership while Wingate and Boiling Springs 
are doing a most excellent work in the Junior College field, though not 
now owned by the State Convention. 

We have demanded of these colleges that they give our children 
Christian Education and they have not betrayed the trust. And now 
upon us they assert their claims; claims that are not unjust. They 
ask of us our patronage, our prayers, our moral and financial support. 
Upon us more than upon them depends the future of these colleges. 

19. Hundred Thousand Club 

The Hundred Thousand Club is steadily gaining ground and favor 
among Baptists of North Carolina and the South. Slowly but surely 
our debts are being paid. If we had the full one hundred thousand 
members each paying his dollar every month we would soon have a 
debtless denomination. Up to May 1, 1938 the sum of $843,051.17 had 
been received in the Nashville office from this Club and every penny 
of it has been paid on the principal of the debts of the southwide 
agencies. $33,107.60 came from North Carolina. (Since the division of 
Club receipts beginning July, 1937, $7,384.73 has been kept in the 
state.) 



18 One Hundred Twenty-third Annual Session 

This effort has stopped over $50,000 in annual interest, strengthened 
the morale of our people, re-established our credit, encouraged all of 
our agencies and has reduced our southwide debts from six million 
dollars to less than three and one half. Surely it deserves the hearty 
support of all our people. 

20. Biblical Recorder 

Our people need to learn that the Recorder is not a liability but 
an asset. Every department of our denominational work depends 
largely for its success upon the Eeoorder. If this paper were to sus- 
pend publication and no other medium of communication established 
to take its place, the effect upon all our denominational work would 
be disastrous. 

The paper sustained a severe loss in the recent home-going of 
Brother J. S. Farmer who for long years served in the capacity of 
business manager and later as editor. In both these capacities he did 
a notably fine work. With brethren E.. A. Dunn and E. F. Terrell as 
business and circulation managers respectively and Dr. G. W. Paschal, 
contributing editor, the work has been carried upon its high plane of 
efficiency and usefulness since the death of Brother Farmer. 

Benevolences 

21. The Orphanage 

There is no institution nearer and dearer to North Carolina Bap- 
tists than our Orphanage. It operates two homes, the Mills Home at 
Thomasville and the Kennedy Home at Kinston. The purpose of this 
institution as provided in the charter, is, ''to prepare poor and promis- 
ing orphans for the duties and responsibilities of life." 

The health record is unparalleled. Out of the large family in the 
two homes only one child has died in over six years. This health 
record is attributed largely to the fact that the children are fed well 
and that they eat and sleep regularly. They work, play, study and 
sleep under proper supervision. Their educational advantages com- 
pare favorably with those offered by other schools of the state. The 
Mills Home is a unit in the Thomasville graded system while the 
Kennedy Home children attend the La Grange school where they have 
the same privileges as other children of the community. 

"Charity and Children," as its organ, is the right hand of the in- 
stitution. The circulation of the paper is now 27,870. Through the 
printing and job department the boys are given some valuable training. 

The expense bill of the Orphanage averages upwards of $450 per 
day. If all the churches of the state would adopt, as many have, the 
once a month Sunday School and Thanksgiving collection the expenses 
would be easily cared for and the Orphanage could go forward with 
a much enlarged program of service. What shall the future of this 
great institution be? North Carolina Baptists have the answer. 



Pee Dee Baptist Association 19 



22. The Hospital 

The North Carolina Baptist Hospital at Winston- Salem has for 
some fifteen years been doing a fine social service as a denominational 
agency. Its beds are occupied at all times, and there is pressing need 
for additional capacity. Its modern equipment, its excellent medical 
and nursing staff, operating always under a spirit of prayer and 
earnestness, account for its remarkably low death rate. Its ministry 
of healing reaches throughout and far beyond the bounds of our state. 
Receipts from the Co-operative Program, Duke Foundation and the 
Mothers' Day offering of the Sunday schools are its means of support. 

23. Old Ministers' Relief and Annuity 

The Relief and Annuity Board of the Southern Baptist Convention 
has just completed its twentieth year of service. It has rendered a 
great service during these years but Baptists have been all too slow 
in realizing the plight and meeting the needs of her worn-out preachers. 
We have not kept step with the other leading denominations of the 
South in providing food, clothing and shelter for thousands of minis- 
ters who have grown old in the service of Christ and for the widows 
of ministers who have gone to their Heavenly reward. 

The Relief and Annuity Board is asking that the churches take at 
least one Fellowship Offering in connection with the observance of 
the Lord's Supper each year and send it through the State Secretary- 
Treasurer to be used for these aged and dependent veterans. A grow- 
ing number of our churches are following this plan but the great 
majority have neglected it. 

24. Training Activities 

For some years there has been a conviction on the part of many of 
our most interested w^orkers that we were about to have too many 
organizations and a consequent overlapping of activities. In an 
effort to correct this possible danger the General Board recommended 
to the Baptist State Convention and the recommendation was accepted, 
that we co-ordinate several of these separate divisions of our work and 
bring them under the supervision of one individual. We are trying 
now to think of Christian Education as one great task and under the 
fine leadership of Brother Perry Crouch we feel that we are going in 
the right direction. For more than a year he has been directing 
this new set-up and has shown an unusual grasp of the problems in- 
volved. Coming under his supervision is the work of the Sunday School, 
the B. T. U., the B. S. U. and Brotherhood. 

The Sunday School Division has been in charge of Mr. L. L. Mor- 
gan. He has demonstrated his ability as a Sunday School leader and 
his wisdom and tireless effort have given him a high place among the 
Sunday workers of the South. This department has been greatly 
strengthened by the addition of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Lane as Field 
Workers. 



20 One Hundred Twenty-third Annual Session 

The Division of the Baptist Training Union is in charge of Nathan 
C. Brooks, Jr. as Secretary. With the assistance of Miss Mabel Starnes 
as Field Worker, Mr. Brooks will do a great service in this field. 

A definite program of work has been begun among the men and 
students. Many Assoiational Men's Meetings have been held during 
the year w^hich have apparently brought renewed interest on the part 
of our men in Kingdom Work. 

With gratitude to God for the success and blessings of the past 
years and with a keen consciousness of the responsibility that is ours 
in doing well the tasks that lie ahead, may we in the light of his 
command, carry on until the work is finished. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. B. Willis. 

25. In the absence of Mrs. W. C. Barrett, Laurinburg, Superin- 
tendent of the Associational Women's Missionary Society, the splendid 
report on the work of the women was read by Aubrey L. Tomlinson, 
Laurinburg, and thereafter accepted. 

REPORT OF WOMEN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

In the true spirit of our W. M. U. Watchword, *' Laborers To- 
gether With G-od, " the women of the Missionary Union of the Pee 
Dee Association have worked together to build up the kingdom of 
Jesus Christ not only here but to the utmost ends of the earth. 

It has always been the aim of our organization to instill missionary- 
ideals and purposes in the hearts of the women, ideals which will find 
outward expression in definite and prayerful service. With this purpose 
always in mind the women have worked along the lines of organization, 
enlistment, prayer, gifts, stewardship, Mission Study and work among 
young people. 

There have been 13 Junior Societies organized during the year and 
6 Women's Missionary Societies, making a total of 19 new organiza- 
tions. For these organizations, we bespeak the sympathetic encourage- 
ment, the interest and help of the pastors. 

The financial record for the year has been most encouraging, $4,- 
907.69 having been contributed to all objects. This is a substantial 
increase in gifts over last year. 

In March, our Annual Meeting was held in the Baptist Church 
of Hamlet. The attendance was unusually large, the program construc- 
tive and interesting and the spirit very deeply earnest and co-operative. 

In July, our Young People held an all-day rally in the EUerbe 
Baptist Church. A large group of young people was present. Among 
the interesting speakers was Mr. C. K. D'jang, of Shanghai, China, 
a student at Wake Forest College. This meeting was under the di- 
rection of Miss Hattie Marks, of Rockingham, Associational Young 
People's Director. 



Pee Dee Baptist Association 21 

In conjunction with Stanly, Union and Montgomery Associations, 
the women of the Pee Dee Association held a Mission Study Institute 
in Wadesboro in April. This institute proved very helpful in promot- 
ing the cause of Mission Study. 

Our women took a very definite step forward in the training of 
our Young People when they secured a cottage at Ridgecrest for the 
duration of the Southwide Y. W. A. Camp, this cottage to be occupied 
by representatives from our Young People's Organizations. Fourteen 
of our young people and counselors enjoyed the wonderful fellowship 
and spiritual enrichment of this great encampment. 

Our women have entered heartily into all plans for our great Golden 
Jubilee Celebration during 1938. 

We are humbly grateful unto God for what has been accomplished 
and as we go forward in His service, we ask your prayers, your interest 
and your support. 

EespectfuUy submitted, 

Mrs. W. C. Barrett.

24 One Hundred Twenty-third Annual Session 

41. The Association was glad to welcome General Secretary, M. A. 
Huggins, Raleigh, who took charge of the special order on The Co- 
operative Program and kindred work of our State Convention. 

42. He was followed by Mrs. Eugene Maske, Rockingham, who spoke 
as a former Orphanage Girl (Miss Flossie Stancil) in a very forceful 
way to the report on the North Carolina Baptist Orphanage. Her 
subject was: ''The Baptist Orphanage — My Former Home." C. C. 
McKoin, from the Mills Home, Thomasville, concluded the discussion. 

43. A practical and appreciative discussion of the Baptist Hospital 
Report was made by a former patient, Mrs. Fred Morgan, Rockingham, 
who spoke on the theme, ''What the Baptist Hospital Means to Me." 
R. R. Ussery, Cordova, followed with a brief testimonial on the splendid 
work carried on by our hospital at Winston-Salem. 

44. Aubrey S. Tomlinson spoke to the report on Training Activities. 

45. Chairman J. E. Reamy moved and the Association adopted the 
report of the Committee on Time, Place and Preacher, as follows:

Wadesboro, Moderator, and he was unanimously elected after the As- 
sociation had passed a motion by Aubrey L. Tomlinson, Laurinburg, 
that closed the nominations.

Proceedings 

of the 

Forty-Fourth Annual Session 

WOMEN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

First Baptist Church 

Hamlet, North Carolina 

March 24, 1938 

1. The Forty -fourth Annual Session of the Women's Missionary 
Union of the Pee Dee Association was held with the First Baptist 
Church, Hamlet, on March 24, 1938. 

2. At 9:45 A.M., Mrs. W. C. Barrett, Laurinburg, Superintendent, 
called the meeting to order and Association sang, **0 Zion Haste." 

3. Mrs. Charles E. Stevens, Morven, led the opening devotion. 

4. The Superintendent, in her annual report received at this time,

ASSOCIATIONAL REPORT 

13. The Co-operative Program 

Southern Baptists have never found a better plan by which to carry 
on their conventional work than by the Co-operative Program. 



Pee Dee Baptist Association 15 

Its value: 

1. It enables me to carry out my part of Christ 's Program of service, 
benevolent, educational, and missionary, 

2. It enables me to have a part in all that is being done. 

3. It enables me to have some part in the whole work of Christ 
each and every week of the year. 

4. It enables me to help do all that needs to be done because it in- 
cludes every sort of service that anybody might wish to render. 
It is the only program in the world that is inclusive of every 
human need. 

5. It enables me to carry out God's financial program for His King- 
dom. 

6. The Co-operative Program does not leave the causes of Christ to 
become the victims of temporary weather conditions, depressions 
in business or other hindering causes. It is the soundest, safest, 
surest, most successful and most scriptural method we have ever 
found for carrying out Christ's will in the world. 

14. Recommendations 

1. That we approve the Co-operative Program, and pray God^s bless- 
ings upon this effort to support all the causes of our denomination 
in a worthy way. 

2. That aU churches put on a campaign in the interest of both local 
expenses and the Co-operative Program. 

3. That all Co-operative Program receipts and other denominational 
funds be remitted promptly each month to Mr. M. A. Huggins, 
Treasurer, Biblical Eecorder Building, Raleigh, N. C. 

15. Report of Missions 

The Spirit of Missions is the heart of the Great Commission spiri- 
tualized. The doing of mission work and the carrying forward of a 
great missionary enterprise is the plan of the Great Commission put in 
operation. Our missionary endeavors are the answer of Southern Bap- 
tists to the call of the Great Commission. Our mission work is divided 
into three rather natural divisions — State, Home, and Foreign. 

16. State Missions 

We understand State Missions to be a missionary enterprise having 
to do with, and being confined within limits of, our State. This State 
work has several departments, such as assisting weak churches to sup- 
port pastors, assisting in building houses of worship where such help is 
required, developing country pastorates, evangelism, and in Indoctrina- 
tion and Enlistment. Surely we should be interested in the matter of 
indoctrinating our people when so many are led away by false and 
foolish doctrines and isms, and in enlistment, owing to the alarming 



16 One Hundred TwENTY-rouRTH Annual Session 

fact that more than half of our church members never contribute a 
penny a year for missionary, educational, and benevolent objectives. 

17. Report on Home Missions 

The old frontiers of Home Missions have passed and new frontiers 
have taken their place. The rapidly developing industrial life of the 
South, together with the world-currents that are flowing through and 
around our Southern Zion, are creating ever enlarging opportunities for 
mission work. 

Here in the homeland, as elsewhere in the world, forces are at work 
on a gigantic scale to give a new "set" to our social, economic, cul- 
tural and religious Hfe for generations to come. In this field of cross 
currents and adverse elements we must bring the impact of the whole 
denomination to bear upon the task for creating a Christ-like social 
order. 

The outlook for the Home Mission Board is brighter right now than 
it has been for years. This is not because the Board is receiving more 
money, and yet it is, but it is because of the confidence which the 
brethren throughout the territory of the Convention evidence in the 
Board, and because of the belief registered everywhere by our people 
that the Board is still doing and will continue to do a necessary and 
valuable mission work. 

Achievements 

The past year has been a year of glorious achievements for Home 
Missions. The Lord has richly blessed our missionaries in every field. 
The Home Mission Board now has 371 missionaries and 756 mis- 
sion stations. During the past year 39 were added to the mission force. 
Sixty-four new mission stations were opened and 20 chapels were ac- 
quired. The missionaries have distributed 29,226 Bibles, Testaments^ 
and portions of Scripture, and over 790,000 tracts. They have preached 
29,454 sermons, led over 5,250 to make profession of faith in Christy 
and have received 3,835 into the fellowship of the church. 

Increasing Gifts to Home Missions 

The past year was one of the best financially in many years for the 
Home Mission Board. Receipts were larger than the year before. 
Marked progress was made in the payment of debts. The Board re- 
ceived from aU sources $513,841.80. The Treasurer's report shows that 
$163,660.89 was paid on the principle of the debt. A debt payment 
program has been mapped out which will liquidate all the debts of the 
Home Mission Board by 1945 provided receipts do not fall below the 
receipts of 1938. 

Let us realize that the challenge of Home Missions is a call to new 
frontiers of work; it is a call to love for the lost because they are 
lost, of every tribe and nation, right here in our midst; it is a call of 
the neighbor to the help of the spiritually helpless who lie wounded 
and stripped on the side of the road that runs by the door where he 



Pee Dee Baptist Association 17 

lives; it is a call for the adjustment of racial relations here at home 
that test the Christ-spirit of our churches and prove or disprove the 
reality of our mission passion. 

18. Foreign Missions 

The Foreign Mission Board is grateful to God for His manifold 
blessings and to Southern Baptists for their love and gifts and prayers. 
Yet Southern Baptists, when they are confronted with what they have 
done and with what they might have done, can but feel that often they 
fall short of the glory of God in matters of work. Notwithstanding 
our failure to do our best in matters of advancing the Kingdom of 
God, we are grateful to God for what faithful and sacrificing Southern 
Baptists and our missionaries have done. 

The Foreign Mission Board now has 419 missionaries and 1,082 
native workers in the 13 foreign countries in which it is operating. On 
these mission fields are 1,774 churches, of which 1,053 are self-sustain- 
ing, and 3,046 outstations. These churches have a total membership of 
214,975. During the past year 16,207 united with these churches by 
baptism. 

Many questions are asked with reference to the effect of the war 
on our Christian work in China. In writing the report for Central 
China, Dr. H. H. McMillan says: 

''This report could be filled ^^-ith heart-rending stories of suffering 
among the milions of people during and after the storm. If I were to 
dwell upon this side of the picture, however, I would not be true to the 
heroic example of the Chinese who are having little to say about the 
past losses and suffering, while applying themselves with fortitude and 
courage to the work at hand. There is a noticeable absence of bitter- 
ness and complaint. From the lips of Christians flows a constant 
stream of praise to God for his goodness and protecting care. Material 
losses sink into insignificance in the presence of such divine providence. 
With all the waste and ruin of war, there is one thing that cannot be 
destroyed, and that is the church of the Living God. The storm that 
would have destroyed the churches only caused their roots to sink 
deeper into the soil and scattered the Gospel seed far and wide. The 
teaching of Jesus had been fulfilled: 'Upon this rock I wiU build my 
church and the gates of heU shall not prevail against it.' Moreover, 
first-century Christianity is repeating itself, 'They that were scattered 
abroad went everywhere preaching the word. ' The missionaries, like 
the Chinese Christians, are challenged to greater endeavor for our Lord. 
Miss Sophie Lanneau expresses the feeling of all the missionaries when 
she says: 'This is the time to stay and to do whatever one's hand finds; 
to do unto the Lord. This is the time for our people at home to be 
encouraged and not discouraged. The life that can say "Thank God 
for his mercies" after such past months is a life showing the reality 
of religion. Christ is not going to lose. He will continue to be 
glorified.' "

19. Report on Christian Education 

Eeligious education is as old as the human family. God taught 
Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden His laws of life. He gave them 
definite instruction. From that day until now the work of Christian 
education has continued. 

Today, the program of Christian education is vital in the life of 
our modern world. The Christian college that is genuinely ' ' Christian * ' 
will give to the world real character. In these perilous times the call 
for Christian statesmanship and leadership is imperative. The church- 
related schools have made a worthy contribution to the development of 
our national life. 

Wake Forest College with its consecrated professorship and its 
amiable record is to us an object of pride. Her scholarship, her spirit 
and her efficiency give her a high place among the great colleges of the 
South. Meredith is doing for our girls what Wake Forest is doing for 
our boys. Chowan, Campbell and Mars Hill are the junior colleges 
under Baptist control and ownership while Wingate and Boiling Springs 
are doing a most excellent work in the junior college field, though not 
now owned by the State Convention. 

We have demanded of these colleges that they give our children 
Christian education and they have not betrayed the trust. And now 
upon us they assert their claims; claims that are not unjust. They ask 
of us our patronage, our prayers, our moral and financial support. 
Upon us more than upon them depends the future of these colleges. 

Reports on Christian education at our associations help no school 
unless they encourage the churches and individuals to help some school 
with both funds and students. The ideal of turning out graduates 
with a real interest in doing church work and with a better knowledge 
of how to do church work is crystallizing in all our Baptist schools. 
The correlative ideal for Baptists is that we must maintain these 
schools — dnd so maintain them that they shall rank as first-rate institu- 
tions educationally. It is inevitable that institutions that are not Bap- 
tist will attract, train and hold our Baptist youth unless we Baptists 
adequately equip and endow our schools, so that these will be able to 
offer Baptist youth as complete educational advantages as are found in 
other schools. 

20. The Biblical Recorder 

The Baptists of our State who wish to keep informed as to Baptist 
activities in the State and throughout the Convention realize more and 
more the great need of the Biblical Recorder. It is needed in our homes 
because of the fact that the weekly and daily press not only fail often 
to speak favorably of Christianity, but too often speak slightly about it. 

We need it for the right interpretation of truth. We need it for 
inspiration. We need it for indoctrination. Our goal should be the 
Biblical Recorder in every Baptist home in the Pee Dee Association.

Benevolences 

21. Mills and Kennedy Homes 

The purpose of the Baptist Orphanage of North Carolina as pro- 
vided in the charter, section four, is "to prepare poor and promising 
orphans for the duties and responsibilities of life. ' ' The Orphanage, 
therefore, is not an institution for the feeble-minded, neither is it a 
reformatory. It functions in the field where it can be of the greatest 
service. 

Since the home was founded in 1885 it has had four General Super- 
intendents: J. H. Mills, 1885-1895; J. B. Boone, 1895-1905; M. L. 
Kesler, 1905-1932; I. G. Greer, 1932—. 

The Orphanage operates two homes, the Mills Home at Thomas- 
ville and the Kennedy Home at Kinston. The administrative office, 
with I. G. Greer, General Superintendent, and R. D. Covington, Treas- 
urer, is located at Thomasville. The Social Service Department, under 
the supervision of Miss Hattie Edwards, is administered from the main 
office at Thomasville. J. C. Hough is Superintendent of the Kennedy 
Home, Kinston. 

The Orphanage is constantly being confronted with two embarrass- 
ments. First, it is impossible to make room for all who apply for ad- 
mission; and second, it is equally impossible for our case workers to 
make investigation immediately on receipt of applications. 

Perhaps no other orphanage in all the world is so bound up with 
the Sunday schools as ours. Almost from the beginning our chief 
support has come from the once-a-month collections from the Sunday 
schools. There are 2,437 Sunday schools in North Carolina. If each 
one of these schools would take a collection and send it in monthly it 
would enable our treasurer to pay all obligations promptly. So far the 
policy of the once-a-month collection, as adopted by the Baptist State 
Convention, has proved to be the most satisfactory method of financing 
the Orphanage. 

The health record of the Orphanage is unparalleled. Out of the 
large family in the two homes only one child has died in over six years. 
This health record is attributed largely to the fact that the children 
are fed well and that they eat and sleep regularly. They are clothed 
appropriately for the season. They work hard, play hard and study 
hard under proper supervision. 

One of the greatest assets in the life of the Orphanage is the library. 
Here the children not only have access to the best books and choicest 
magazines, but) their reading is directed by a skilled librarian. 

Charity and Children, as its organ, is the right arm of the institu- 
tion. The work of the job department has grown until it is a big 
business enterprise within itself. It gives valuable training to quite a 
number of the boys. The circulation of the paper is now 27,870. We 
ought to have a club in every Sunday school. The price to single sub- 



20 One Hundred Twenty-foueth Annual Session 

scribers is $1.00, in clubs of 10 or more to one address, 60 cents per 
copy a year. The plan in these clubs is to furnish a copy of the paper 
to each family represented in the Sunday school. 

22. The Baptist Hospital 

The ministry of healing is indeed Christianity in practice. In the 
North Carolina Baptist Hospital, the Baptists of our State undertake 
to "heal the sick'* as He taught. Patients come from every section of 
the State, often traveling great distances in the faith that there will 
be beds available for them and they will get the care and treatment. 
If a bed or even space for a cot is available, they are received regard- 
less of creed or ability to pay. In keeping with the hospital's Christian 
character, no applicant for admission has ever been turned away be- 
cause he or she didn't have the price. 

Our Opportunity 

A minimum of $200,000 must be obtained to end the over-crowded 
condition at the hospital by doubling its bed capacity, and at the same 
time without cost to our denomination enabling it to work hand in hand 
with the new Medical School, a branch of Wake Forest CoUege that will 
be constructed on the hospital grounds. 

A great and generous gift by the Bowman Gray Foundation is mak- 
ing possible the construction and endowment of this Medical School. 
Thus the hospital will become part of a great new Medical Center. 

We cannot fail to meet this urgent appeal in a way that will re- 
flect honor upon our denomination in the present and in the future. 

23. Ministerial Relief and Annuity 

The Belief and Annuity Board of the Southern Baptist Convention 
has just completed its twenty-first year of service. It has paid in 
benefits during these twenty-one years $3,560,690.21. The relief bene- 
fits during' the past year totaled $90,776.28, and annuity benefits, 
$233,748.38. 

Our people should give to the work of this Board earnest prayer 
and liberal contributions. 

24. Fellowship Offerings for Relief 

In addition to the regular Co-operative Program gifts, which are by 
no means sufficient for the work of this Board, every church within the 
bounds of the Southern Baptist Convention should respond to the ap- 
peal of the Board for at least one Fellowship Offering to be taken at 
the Lord's Supper during each year. Such action on the part of our 
churches would make it possible for this Board to provide benefits for 
aged ministers and widows that would really meet their necessities. 
At present we are not meeting their necessities — we are only helping 
a little. How simple a matter it would be for our churches to do this, 
and we believe they will do it if our ministers will request it. Surely 



Pee Dee Baptist Association 21 

no minister will feel embarrassed in making this proposal to his church, 
for it will not be for himself but for others. 

25. The Convention Ministers Retirement Plan 

The Convention Ministers Eetirement Plan, which is already in op- 
eration in South Carolina and Texas, is expected to go into operation 
during the present year in at least six other states, and before the 
beginning of the new year in several more. 

This plan is the flowering forth of all previous plans and promises 
to bring adequate support for all active ministers of the Southern Bap- 
tist Convention. Unfortunately those who have already retired cannot 
participate in this plan — they must be aided from the Belief Depart- 
ment, but there is no reason why in the years to come there should be 
a single needy preacher in his old age in the Southern Baptist Conven- 
tion. Surely our churches, who have been exempt from taxation by 
the government: and have been left free to carry on their work without 
interference from the government, will feel that they should do volun- 
tarily for their ministers what the government requires business organ- 
izations to do by law. 

This new plan is making great progi'ess, and it has behind it the 
State Conventions, the State Boards and the officials of the conventions 
and the boards, and this time the preachers themselves, for the funds 
they ask their churches to pay toward this plan are not for themselves 
as individuals, but for a great group of preachers who participate in 
the plan. It is a plan that offers a real solution of the problem of 
ministerial relief and is destined to be accepted by every State Con- 
vention, and we trust by every church and minister in the Southern 
Baptist Convention. 

26. Teaching and Training 

In the early days attention was almost solely on evangelism. Now 
that our membership has grown so rapidly emphasis must be given to 
the training and development of the membership, without, however, 
omitting evangelism. About 1900 State Missions began to assume a 
part of its enlarging task. Sunday school departments were established 
as a part of the general work. The workers connected with this depart- 
ment, as time would permit, went out to the churches in an effort to 
secure and train better teachers and to put into operation better meth- 
ods of Sunday school administration. At a later period the B. Y. P. U. 
— now the B. T. U. — was organized, emphasizing not so much the teach- 
ing but the training and development of the membership. 

With the department of our work in the hands of such leaders as 
Brethren Perry Crouch, L. L. Morgan, Nathan Brooks and their effi- 
cient helpers, we feel sure that we shall press toward the goal. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Chas. E. Stevens.

EDGAR MACON BROOKS, SR. 

In Whose Honor and Appreciation the 1940 Minutes Are Issued by 
Order of the Association 

Born in Stanly County, North Carolina, near Norwood, February 5, 
1861, the son of Cullen Brooks and (Mrs.) Louisa Allen Brooks. Edu- 
cation limited to the three months public schools of his day, yet a 
diligent student and constant reader of the Bible and the best books 
obtainable through the years, being a continuous subscriber to the 
Bihlical Recorder for sixty-two years. Other publications having a great 
influence in his life were: The North Carolina Farmer, and The Pro- 
gressive Farmer. Married (Miss) Emma Eugenia Morton, January 23, 
1901. Children: Cullen Paul, Clara Jane, Edgar Macon, Jr., Julian 
Allen, Boylus Cade, Mary Louisa. Joined the Baptist Church in 1887. 
Began his Baptist Ministry in 1897. Not ordained until two years later 
in Old Rocky River Church because as he states ' ' I felt it my duty to 
prove my calling before asking for ordination. ' ' His first churches were 
Pleasant Hill and Cottonville in Stanly County. He served continuously 
at different periods thirty-six Baptist Churches and retired in 1940 
after a thirteen-year pastorate of the Peachland Church in Anson 
County. As Historian of the Pee Dee Baptist Association (1929-1940) 
he rendered a great service in presenting and recording valuable factual 
data on the thrilling history of this one hundred twenty-five year old 
Association. He is now living and continuing his ministry near the 
scenes of his j^outh in Stanly County.

RECORD OF PROCEEDINGS 

OF THE 

ONE HUNDRED TWENTY-FIFTH ANNUAL SESSION 

OF THE 

PEE DEE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

HELD WITH 

CARTLEDGE CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH 

R. F. D. No. 4 
ROCKINGHAM, NORTH CAROLINA 



TUESDAY 

Afternoon Session 

October 22, 1940 

1. Missionary Baptists of the Pee Dee Baptist Association, com- 
prising the counties of Anson, Eichmond, and Scotland, convened in 
One Hundred Twenty-fifth Annual Session, Tuesday afternoon, Oc- 
tober 22, 1940, with the Cartledge Creek Church in Eichmond County. 

2. T. G. Thomas, song director, assisted at the piano by Mrs. Mar- 
jorie Thomas Tutor, both of the Cartledge Creek Church led, as the 
Association sang '*To The Work." 

3. The devotional service was led by the host pastor, C. E. Euffin, 
Ellerbe. 

4. At 2:25 Moderator W. H. Moore, Wadesboro, called the Associa- 
tion to the transaction of business, indicating that the sessions would 
cover two days for the first time since 1924, and that the Association 
last met with Cartledge Creek Church twenty years ago. 

5. Announcement was made by Clerk Charles B. Deane, Eocking- 
ham, that messengers were being enrolled under the guidance of W. H. 
Covington, Cartledge Creek Church, and the Clerk ^s motion that those 
messengers now enrolled and others who may register during the ses- 
sions shall constitute the Association of 1940, was adopted. Thereafter 
messengers and visitors from the different churches present were recog- 
nized. 

6. Moderator Moore released the following committees: 
Committee on Committees: J. Marvin Smith, Chairman, B. H. Con- 
dor, and C. M. Covington. 

Committee on New Church Applications: Aubrey S. Tomlinson, 
Chairman, Bruce Benton, James B. Little, and J. C. Meigs. 



16 One Hundred Twenty-fifth Annual Session 

7. Robert C. Melton, Rockingham, pastor at McDonald and Marston 
and L. A. Huneycutt, Wingate, pastor at Pleasant Grove (A) were 
welcomed for the first time as new pastors in the Association. 

8. Visitors at this session from without the Association were cor- 
dially welcomed. They were: M. A. Huggins, Raleigh, General Secre- 
tary, North Carolina Baptist State Convention; Dr. A. C. Reid, Wake 
Forest College, Wake Forest; I. N. Patterson, Missionary to Africa, 
now representing the Foreign Mission Board, Richmond, Virginia; and 
C. C. Burris, President of Wingate Junior College, Wingate. 

9. Missionary Patterson spoke at this time in behalf of the Foreign 
Mission Board and urged the messengers to subscribe to the different 
publications issued by the Board. 

Song: ''Near The Ctoss." 

10. General Secretary Huggins brought the first message of the 
afternoon. His words centered around the Co-operative Program and 
the efforts of the Convention to erect the Wake Forest College Chapel. 
During the course of his message Clerk Deane pointed out that the 
churches of the Association had given to local gifts approximately 
$3,500.00 over 1939, and $2,100.00 over last year to Co-operative Pro- 
gram and denominational gifts. Secretary Huggins indicated that gains 
were being shown throughout the State but urged each church not to 
fail in support of the Wake Forest Chapel movement. 

11. The Moderator, Chairman of the Chapel Movement in the Asso- 
ciation, urged the churches to complete their canvass before Novem- 
ber 15, 1940, calling attention to the fact that it was at this historical 
old church, Cartledge Creek, that the Third Annual North Carolina 
Baptist State Convention met November 1-6, 1833, and approved the 
report and the initial plans for the establishment of Wake Forest Col- 
lege, then designated Wake Forest Institute. 

Song: ''Amazing Grace." 

12. Dr. A. C. Reid, head of the Department of Philosophy, Wake 
Forest College, followed with a message on Christian Education. His 
message was so well received that upon motion by J. B. Willis, Hamlet, 
the Clerk was instructed to write President Thurman D. Kitchen, Wake 
Forest College, expressing the gratitude of the Association for the 
presence of Dr. Reid and for his challenging address. 

13. President Burris, Wingate Junior College, next responded and 
upon motion by Charles B. Deane, Aubrey S. Tomlinson, Laurinburg; 
T. W. Hearne, Rockingham; and A. D. Griffin, Peachland were con- 
firmed as Trustees of the institution. 

14. The afternoon session then adjourned following prayer by L. A.

19. Bruce Benton, Eockingham, submitted the Association Eeport, 
covering the principal objects of our State, Southwide and World pro- 
grams for Missionary Baptists. The report was adopted as follows upon 
motion by J. Marvin Smith. 

THE ASSOCIATION REPORT 

20. The Co-operative Program 

The Co-operative Program is a plan adopted by Southern Baptists 
whereby each Baptist and each church, through the unified budget, may 
share in giving to the entire Kingdom's work. This plan has proved 
to be most effective so far, and it is growing more popular with the 
passing of years. 

21. Missions 

For the sake of convenience we have divided missions into State, 
Home and Foreign Missions. But we are to remember that the name 
does not change the purpose and character of missions. Every Baptist 
church is a missionary church, and every Baptist preacher is a mission- 
ary. All our churches are in the great work of giving the Gospel of 
the Son of God to those who have it not, and all our preachers are set 
to preach the unsearchable riches of Jesus Christ and him crucified, 
whether on a state-wide, home-wide, or world-wide basis. 

22. State Missions 

This is the immediate task of every Baptist in North Carolina for 
building up the Kingdom within the confines of our own State. With 
the influx of people from all parts of the world into our State; with 
the rapid industrialization of our State; with the growth of towns and 



18 One Hundred Twenty-fifth Annual Session 

cities, and the constant changes in our rural population, there is impera- 
tive need that we give more serious attention to the work of the Lord 
in our domain. New churches ought to be established and aided where 
there are not enough Baptists to carry on the work. Weak, struggling 
churches ought to be given sufficient aid to keep them functioning until 
such time as they can support themselves. The present strength of our 
denomination in the State is due in large measure to the fact that, in 
the earlier days, our fathers wisely planted mission stations in towns 
and in the country; and from these small beginnings have developed 
some of our strongest churches. 

23. Home Missions 

Southwide in scope, the Home Mission Board, located in Atlanta, 
Ga., is undertaking to evangelize and develop those stretches of our 
territory in which the separate states have but partially labored, or 
which have not been able to cope with the difficult situations. No one 
state can adequately take care of our larger cities, the great numbers 
of foreigners, the Jews, the Negroes, the industrial and recreational 
centers. The Home Board is doing a splendid piece of work along these 
lines, besides the work it is carrying on in Cuba, Panama, Canal Zone, 
and other points in Central America. If we let our Southland become 
paganized and papalized, then there is but little hope for evangelical re- 
ligion in the United States. 

24. Foreign Missions 

When the Lord commanded his disciples to go, make disciples, bap- 
tize them, and to teach them to observe all things commanded, he placed 
no racial or territorial boundaries. Our Foreign Mission Board, with 
headquarters in Richmond, Va., is undertaking to carry out the ''great 
commission" by sending missionaries into Asia, Africa, Europe, South 
America, Mexico, and other outlying districts of the world. The second 
great World War now in progress has greatly disrupted the work of 
our missionaries; but it has not destroyed their faith in God, and their 
will to remain at their tasks until the Kingdom come and His will be 
accomplished. Now, as probably never before, is our opportunity to 
reach and evangelize large sectors of the human race who have lost 
faith in governments and rulers, and who are like sheep without shep- 
herds. It is no time for retrenchment and retreat; of all times, it is 
the day of opportunity for a great crusade for Christ our Lord. 

25. Christian Education 

Illiteracy is the bane of all races and all cults. It breeds fanaticism, 
superstition and fear. An educated people is an open-minded people. 
But an education without the Christian motive undergirding it, may 
become a dangerous instrument in the hands of man. We believe, there- 
fore, in a system of education that teaches the truth, all that is true; 
and which is not circumscribed by the traditions of men. In our Bap- 
tist colleges and schools we find that system operating at its highest 



Pee Dee Baptist Association 19 

level. The policy of our schools is to develop Christian character in 
the students as well as to impart knowledge to them. We make no 
apology for maintaining and supporting these schools; ''by their fruits 
ye shall know them." They should be kept distinctively Christian and 
Baptist, and the denomination should give to them its loyalty, support 
and patronage. 

Benevolences 

26. The Hospital 

In our State the Baptists have only one hospital, located in Winston- 
Salem; but it is one of the best manned and equipped hospitals in all 
the country. With the gift of the Bowman Grey Foundation, the School 
of Medicine of Wake Forest College is being transferred to Winston- 
Salem, and will have its domicile on the grounds of the Baptist Hos- 
pital. That means an enlarged medical college and an enlarged hos- 
pital. Our offerings on Mother's Day should be greatly increased in 
order to take care of the increasing number of needy patients who are 
entering the hospital. 

27. The Orphanage 

Our Baptist Orphanage is comprised of two units — one at Thomas- 
ville, known as the Mills Home, and one at Kinston, known as the 
Kennedy Home. Both of these institutions are doing a great and good 
work, and both are caring for and training a large number of boys and 
girls, who otherwise might be lost to society and to our Lord's work. 
These institutions are dear to our people, and our churches cheerfully 
contribute to their support through the monthly offerings in the Bible 
Schools, and the annual Thanksgiving offering. 

28. Ministers' and Church Employees' Retirement Plan 

For the first time in the history of our state work, the Baptists have 
formulated and adopted a plan by which old ministers and other church 
employees may retire from active service with the assurance of a limited 
support. While the amount of help this fund provides is at present 
meager, it promises greater assistance in the years to come. Every pas- 
tor should enroll in this Retirement Plan, and every church should 
count it a privilege to have a part in this needed work. This plan is in 
co-operation with the Relief and Annuity Board of the Southern Bap- 
tist Convention. 

Training Activities 

29. Bible Schools 

One of the finest agencies for teaching and training our youth, as 
well as the adults of our churches, is the Sunday School, better defined, 
the Bible School. Through this agency the churches obtain the majority 
of their recruits. Consequently it is very important that our Sunday 
Schools be manned by men and women who are qualified by training, 
and who have been ''born from above," that their pupils may be led 



20 One Hundred Twenty-fifth Annual Session 

into a consciousness of their sins and into the saving knowledge of the 
Son of God. Our goal should be ''More and better Sunday Schools, 
better trained teachers, better material equipment, and better teaching 
of the Word of God." 

30. Baptist Training Union 

The fact is, that in most of our churches the Training Union has 
not been taken seriously. In some cases, pastors feel that the Unions 
have not trained their young into the churches, but rather away from 
the churches. The fault, probably, is with both pastors and parents, in 
that they have not taken an active and guiding hand in the work of 
the Unions. Or else the trouble lies in the leadership of the Unions. 
In all events, our pastors and churches find it difficult to keep the 
Unions properly functioning. We ought to abandon them, or else put 
more energy and spirit and thinking into them. None questions the 
need and importance of training our youth in Bible study and methods. 
We ought, therefore, to utilize the Training Unions, and to make them 
great dynamos of spiritual power. It can be done, but it is going to 
take prayer, consecration and divine wisdom on the part of those who 
are the leaders in this field. 

31. Religious Literature 

In this day of radio, pictures, and reading matter of all types, 
it is highly important that the right sort of literature come into our 
homes. Certainly every Baptist home in the State should have the Bil>- 
lical Beorder on its table, so that no member of the family could escape 
its influence. What a child reads will largely determine the character 
of that child. "As one readeth, so is he." 

32. Conclusion 

NotAvithstanding the horrible conditions created by war in Europe, 
and the bewildered state of mind of our own people, we have much to 
encourage us. The Lord has greatly blessed us, our churches have grown 
and prospered, our schools are full to overflowing, and all signs point 
toward a larger opportunity for our Baptist people to demonstrate the 
principles of religious freedom, democracy in church government, and 
loyalty to the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Bruce Benton. 

Song, ''Blessed Jesus." 

33. A message, "Old Age Ministers and Ministers Retirement 
Plan," was brought by J. B. Willis, Hamlet. 

34. J. Boyce Brooks, Rowland, guest of the Association, came as 
the representative of the Biblical Eecorder and spoke on Religious Lit- 
erature. 

35. In the absence of Smith Hagaman, Superintendent of the Bap- 
tist Hospital, Winston-Salem, C. E. Ruffin, the Hospital Representative 



Pee Dee Baptist AssociATioisr 21 

in the Association, spoke of the greatly enlarged program at the Hos- 
pital and the establishment of the Bowman Grey Medical School of 
Wake Forest College and urged closer co-operation on the part of the 
churches. 

36. The report of the Treasurer, appearing below, was read by 
Charles B. Deane and referred to the Audit Committee.

Historian E. M. Brooks, New London, for thirteen years pastor at 
Peachland, but recently retired. The Association took special recogni- 
tion of the honorable life and special service rendered by Brother 
Brooks now nearing eighty years of age, when, following a motion by 
J. B. Willis, the Association authorized the Clerk to dedicate the 1940

39. The Committee on New Church Applications , reported through 
Aubrey S. Tomlinson, Chairman, who stated that the committee unani- 
mously approved receiving the Marston Church, constituted in 1939, 
Robert C. Melton, Pastor, which action took place upon motion by B. H. 
Condor. As the Moderator extended greetings to this new church at- 
tention was called to the fact that even now this group of Baptists 
were giving more to the denominational program than several churches 
which have been in the Association for many years. The Pastor was 
requested to carry to this new group of Baptists greetings from the 
Association, urging also that they continue their splendid efforts and 
actively take part in all phases of the Baptist denominational program. 

40. Cards sponsored by the United Dry Forces in North Carolina 
were distributed among the Messengers and visitors and approximately 
three hundred were signed, being a pledge to abstain from the use of in- 
toxicating liquors and also to be used with other signatures from North 
Carolina in submitting a memorial to the 1941 North Carolina State 
Legislature asking that a state-wide referendum on the sale of intoxi- 
cating liquors in North Carolina be granted.

journed for a bountiful dinner served by the membership of the Cart- 
ledge Creek Church.

The report was adopted upon motion by Vice-Moderator Tomlinson, 
who had been succeeded as presiding officer by the Moderator.
